was really interesting, after those charges were read out, the defense attorney erupting oscar pistorius laid out, if you will, some of the points of the defense. oscar pistorius signed an affidavit at his bail hearing said that he had heard a disturbance in the bathroom of his house just after he had been to retrieve some fans from the balcony of that apartment of that house, and that's when he grabbed the pistol from underneath his bed, went into the bathroom, shot those shots through the bathroom door. even the magistrate at the time at the bail hearing had said, how could oscar pistorius not have known that his girlfriend, reeva steenkamp, wasn't in the bed? well, listening to his defense attorney now, we're beginning to get some semblance of details added on. his defense attorney said as oscar, or just before oscar pistorius went to get those fans from his balcony, he had talked to reeva steenkamp in bed. the indication there laying the groundwork that he believed she was in bed because he had just talked to her. he said it was pitch dark and that's why he didn't know. so, we're beginnin
. no, we don't need missile defense shield. putin has the eu, a feckless eu abandoned defense budgets for the welfare state. how is the president going to rally the eu, which was a big point yesterday on the show. when we have the french sending vessels over to help the russian navy and the germans have shown no appetite to get involved. president obama has no cards to play. >> those mid-range weapons in europe were introduced by harold brown and jimmy carter in 1978 and 1979. you're right about the french, the feckless eu. >> at least carter canceled the olympics. president obama doesn't even have the guts to do that. he canceled, whaultd, the paralympics? >> i think it's a difficult position because they need this energy that russia gives them because there's no other way to give them. >> god forbid we would want to piss off the environmentalists. >> i'm not needed here. that was my point. a good point. so, okay, amazingly, bob turned this into a question of what is happening today to what did reagan accomplish? that was five minutes spent rehashing that. i'll also say one thing abo
. you were a former assistant of defense in the reagan administration. what's going on in russia right now? >> they have decided to take what it couldn't get with a carrot it's going to take with a stick. russia tried to buy ukraine, offered them a big loan, cheap gas. they said no thank you very much so russia is going to take what it wants which is crimea. >> what's at stake for us? >> for the last 40 years we have been promoting democracy. these people want what we want but they can't have it. russia wants it back. they want greater russia back. as much as president obama said it's a cold war game, it's russia at every step check mating the united states and supplanting us in that part of the world. >> when you see transport vehicles, aircraft landing in your city, it doesn't feel like a game. is there anything that would pull our american military into what's going on between russia and ukraine? >> we don't have a military option there. >> when the president threatens, what is he talking about? >> you'll ask to ask him. >> i mentioned that you were with the reagan administration an
on the table. that's what secretary of defense, chuck hagel, delivered today. we are going to send an aircraft wing that's been in poland, a nato ally to the west of ukraine, that's going to be extended. the u.s. is going to send more aircraft to the baltic state, north of the ukraine, also nato allies. more aircraft there. he is going to convenient nato ministers to talk about the next step. you have the carrot and the stick. if this doesn't change, the situation on the ground doesn't change, costs are going to be imposed. at the same time, we are going to demonstrate our commitment to those nato allies. you see them there, the ones in green along ukraine's western poured der. . >> jim sciutto live and michael holmes, we do have some breaking news right now from capitol hill. as jim was saying, what is being most used right now, words and statements. diplomacy in this crisis. there are about to be some words and statements coming from the u.s. congress. >> our deirdra walsh just spoke with ed royce, chairman of the foreign committee in the house. he said tomorrow that committee will hold a vo
in the united states coming to the defense of gay and lesbian citizens. to finally be written in to full citizenship in this country. lgbt people. is, you know, literally not something i thought i would see in my lifetime. really. i'm gratifiedfy it and i am thrilled that you've seen attorney generals in virginia, now new mexico, refuse to defend. they're clearly unconstitutional anti-gay marriage bans. there's one other thing i wanted to note about arizona and its law. it's currently not illegal in arizona to discriminate against people based on their sexual orientation. right now people can be fired in arizona or denied services or thrown out of their apartments for being gay, lesbian, bi, or transgendered. so this law not only was completely unnecessary, but the vetoing of this law isn't going to protect lgbt people in arizona who are currently facing anti-queer discrimination. >> i mean, look, that's such an important point. you can cast this as in some ways a hopeful sign because as we're reporting the incredible united backlash to something bad. it's a long ways from full equality
with defense cuts and no entitlement reforms. >> it makes no effort to address the drivers of our debt and deficit. >> we'll sit down with leaders of the congressional budget the committee, senator rob portman and congressman chris van hollen. plus arizona governor jan brewer vetoes a bill that would protect religious freedom over gay rights. but other states may take up similar measures. our sunday panel weighs in. and our power players of the week. they are making the please don't touch signs at museums a past. all right now on fox "fox news sunda sunday". hello again from fox news in washington. we begin with a fast moving developments in ukraine. president obama spoke with russian president putin and said the u.s. will suspend planning for the g-8 summit in sochi this summer. putin got approval from the russian parliament to send troops into ukraine. and the russians have seized control of the crimean peninsula without firing a shot. ukraine's government says we are on the brink of disaster. and is asking the u.s. and europe for help. let's get the latest now from fox news national
heard it again today from the russian defense minister. he maintained that no, there are no russian soldiers occupying crimea as it stands. they maintain this position that they say it is local self-defense teams, local militias, and we only know on the ground what we see and what our own cfn teams have seen. there's some local militias but undoubtedly russian soldiers. not wearing the insignia but heavily armed, driving armored vehicles, some of those vehicles have russian registration plates. very difficult to see how negotiations can proceed when the russian position is just that they have not begun any occupation of ukrainian territory. >> phil black in moscow. as we mentioned at the top of the hour, russia is due to take part in nato's discussion of the cries in ukraine. john kerry is due to meet with his russian counterpart. kerry lamented russian's absence ever his counterparts from great britain and ukraine. >> we have our friends from ukraine and great britain, partners in the budapest agreement of 1994. we're missing one member, hopefully meet this afternoon with that indi
shaking in their boots. after all the russian told the president to take our missile defense systems out of europe, and president said yes, sir, and took them out, put them on the back of our navy, and gave the navy no additional asset to do that. now he is cutting asset that navy has, i don't think that the president right now has the credibility necessary to back up many of his statements. lou: and do you have a view as to what likely putin will do in ukraine? >> lou, one thing that we're always afraid of, when you see the vacuums then you know, president putin may try t to -- exhibit some of his muscle, a react on world react, not u.s. reacted we're hoping he will be deliberate and not do, that let the ukrainian people work this out forever themselves, no matter how difficult that work out might be. lou: i was to turn to the issue of defense spending, and budget cuts, that are being insisted upon our military, and the pentagon. you are a champion of our military. you are more concerned than most on capitol hill. about national security, day in and day out. what is your judgment of the
loyalties to the west and loyalties to russia. our defense secretary chuck hagel urging russia to act cautiously, that the u.s. strongly supports ukraine's territorial integrity. we'll watch the story. jon: new he will developments in the social eight murder trial. pamela phillips charged with a plotting a car bombing that killed her husband. coming up, an emotional breakdown in court. >>> remember the anti-muslim filmed once blamed for the deadly terror attacks in benghazi, sparking them? a judge orders them pulled from the internet. the stunning reason why. jenna: welcome back, everyone. a federal appeals court ordering youtube to take down a film from its website over a copyright complaint. it is not just any film. it is the same film the white house originally blamed for sparking the deadly attack on our consulate in benghazi. william la jeunesse live in our l.a. newsroom with more on this. william? >> reporter: jenna, of course that claim by the white house was untrue but now the film president obama wanted off the internet is gone. not because it is anti-muslim but because it vi
in crimea. we have now spoken to someone from the ministry of defense. they say let's not put too much weight on this. frankly, every time that the russian troops have encircled military bases and they have now around ten, they have given some kind of an ultimatum. he said this is just another one of those. frankly, these ultimatums have passed and nothing has really happened. so i think it is important not to put too much weight on this deadli deadline. it is not necessarily an official deadline. from what we have seen, they have been very calm. it has been a very low key kind of invasion. ben wedeman our own ben wedeman was just at one of the border post bases. he said that the soldiers there, one commander told him he got his orders to leave his base at the black sea fleet on saturday. he had come up there. the locals were giving him tea and letting him have a place to have showers. so it has all been very amicable. as i said, a pretty low-key invasion. the situation on the ground here is very, very calm. it seems to be the international community and the world markets and everyone
to the gym. she was found not guilty. danny, what do you make of the verdict? >> her entire defense was about who she was, a person on her way to work. that context was critical. the only shot she had here. her entire defense was involuntary intoxification. she accidentally took one of these ambiens. that defense hinged on the context. what kind of person was this? i promise you, if the facts were that she was at an applebys at night and she had an ambien, i don't know they would believe that was involuntary intoxification. instead, she was on the way to the gym. who in the world of drug addicts would take an ambien to go to the gym? >> it is a common sense argument. why would you possibly do that? you said it was all about who she is, no the necessarily the kennedy name. the kennedy name did come up, very prominently introduced by the defense. they explained who she was, all about her family. do you think it played any role in being charged and also in the verdict? >> whenever you have a defendant you are putting on the stand, you will do anything to bring out facts that will show they are a
of the ukraine. >> we know that the ukrainian defense minister, we just reported a little while ago, he says that the ukrainian military now is on the, quote, highest state of military readiness. is it really realistic that there could be military confrontation between ukrainian forces and invading russian forces? >> reporter: i don't think either side wants that and i think what the president and his advisors are trying to think about is two things, how do you drive up the cost to putin and how do you limit putin to go no further than he has already gone in crimea. give him some good advice, which would be restraint, don't take on the russian military unless they think twice about it. but also give them substantial economic support, stand by them, get the imf in there to give them short-term economic stability and there ought to be some kind of dramatic signal by the major foreign ministers of europe, and shicning an international spotlight on putin. the critontribut we need to cha there's a lot the administration can do to orchestrate at least an attempt to limit putin and drive up the cos
today. >> there are reports this morning that russian troops have seized two ukrainian defense missile system in crimea. >> sanctions could be imposed on russia if it fails to de-escalate by tomorrow. >> if you like your health plan you may be able to keep it longer. the "washington post" says the obama administration is rewriting rules. >>> mom and dad are victors against a daughter for whom they refused to support. >> in florida, a woman and her three children are safe as a dramatic ocean rescue. they were inside a minivan that drove into the surf at daytona beach. >> what were they thinking about? >> electrical contractors believed to be at fault for a huge explosion in south jersey. at least ten homes were destroyed. >> chaos. didn't know what was going on, what had happened. >>nother member of the bush family has entered the political arena. george p. bush won texas land commissioner. >> what is the burrito without guacamole? chipotle is warming climate changes could drive up prices. >> oh, that? >> check him out. >> he has some moves. >> the wobble dance. >> dra
, it is skyrocketing. >> i think that the military budget in may opinion, eric, is loaded. fundamentally, the defense is a responsibility of government. government is forced. defense is what keeps us safe. that's why the entitlement programs weren't present in the constitution and as -- they made it nonetheless. the defense is a proper role of government. redistribution is not. >> let me do this. i'm going to throw this to you and put a picture up here of two different people. we are going to take surfer boy on one side. we are going to take a military guy on the other side. are we now handing over lobster and sushi to surfer dude at the expense of the military guys who, by the way, juan, they have to pay more for tri-care, military health system, more for housing and their pay is being frozen? is that fair? is that the america we want? >> this is so simplistic it is laughable. are you kidding me? even thon thon said our military budget is bloated. we have programs that even the military says that they don't want or need. when it comes to surfer dude, everybody says that guy looks like a bum. he shou
between russia and the united states over things like syria, edward snowden and missile defense got a lot worse now over ukraine. craig? >> those winter olympics seem like they happened so, so long ago now. nbc's jim maceda for us in moscow, jim, thank you. let's turn now to nbc's chief global correspondent, bill neely, who's in crimea. >> reporter: the crisis here in crimea is deepening. but so, too, worries of an imminent russian takeover. we have seen russian boots on the ground here today, well-armed, well-disciplined men ringing key sites. they're at the interior ministry with rocket-propelled grenades. they're ringing crimea's parliament, machine guns on the ground in a show of force and they're also at crimea's main military airport. there overnight, up to a dozen russian aleutian transport planes brought in, including russian attack helicopters. ukraine's defense minister says around 6,000 additional russian troops have arrived. no confirmation of that. he calls it an invasion, whether you agree with that word or not, it certainly is an intervention. and the new ukrainian -- untes
they have formed self-defense teams and took over the control of military bases. when i saw yesterday what they have taken over, they -- there are 22,000 troops and a lot of arms. but as i said, without a single shot, it is now in the hand of the ukrainian people. the people who were blocking -- >> let's get back out of this now and explain what's happened so far. from what we've heard so far, let's just go other the headlines. he's been speaking about 20 minutes now. we believe he's entertaining legitimate questions. he says this is a wrongful coup that has happened, that yanukovych was wrongful ly ousted. that the idea of sanctions should be very carefully examined because they will hurt everyone and all options are on the table for him. the first question, it seems that crimea is not the oend, ony the beginning. >> right. seems to me this is availed threat. he's saying unless i have a seat at the table in deciding what's going to happen in the future of the government of ukraine, we reserve the right to go further into russian ukraine. he's really giving no evidence of that. i think wha
the crisis. defense secretary hagel takes heat up on capitol hill but says the u.s. is suspending military exercises with russia and will step up training with poland's military. we have full coverage beginning with our chief national security correspondent jim sciutto here tw latest. jim? >> i think you could say today we saul the full yin and yang of the u.s. policy response to the crisis in crimea. on the other side, secretary of defense chuck hagel demonstrating the u.s. commitment to its nato allies with the deployment of some aircraft and the cancellation-of nato contacts with russia. on the diplomatic side, we saw the opening of a diplomatic path to solving the crisis, the so-called off ramp u.s. officials have mentioned before, still undefined, kerry said, but a start. >> reporter: u.s. and russian diplomats face to face for the first time since the start of the crisis in crimea. secretary of state john kerry said they are now negotiating a diplomatic path to ending it. >> we are committed to working with russia. together with our friends and allies in an effort to provide a way fo
earlier talking about revisiting putting u.s. missile defense in the czech republic. remember russia's response to that when we went through that a couple of years ago. that to this point is something we've not heard the administration is considering. >> and you're on the ground in kiev. what's the scene like there? how are people responding to what's going on in crimea? >> reporter: the government here is definitely very concerned, anderson. they see this as an invasion by the russians as a part of annex crimea as part of russia. they're looking at a diplomatic effort now. no doubt the ukrainance could not go blow to blow with the russians. they don't have the fire power that the russians do. so they're looking abroad. and that look goes towards the united nations. they're asking the u.n. security council to get involved. it's unclear what role they would play as russia as you know has veto power in the security council. and moscow has been concerned over the ethnic russians in the crimea. one thing the ukrainen government has asked to send monitors into the crimea to show ethnic ru
in our criminal justice system, you have to have an advocacy on both sides. criminal defense attorneys don't support crime, but they represent the interest of their client. when you're suing someone because you feel like you've been harmed by them, you know, you're not supporting -- when someone is defending them, you're not supporting the harm. you're supporting the adversarial process. if the state attorney general doesn't stand up for the citizens of their state on a particular law, who else will have standing to go into the court system and represent the interests of the state? usually nobody. >> i want to speak to the fact that eric holder is the one delivering this message. where is president obama on this? we all know president obama over the years has quote/unquote evolved on the gay marriage issue. why are we hearing this from eric holder? >> well, you know, he said that he and the president had spoken about this at great lengths and the decision not to defend doma several years ago was one he did not take lightly. that's when he conveyed to the ags. by the way, i appreciated
anti-submarine warfare votes. the defense minister claimed the movement of those russian forces is purely coincidence. insisting that the military movement and wargames were prescheduled. and obama responding. secretary of state john kerry warned russia that any military action in the ukraine would be a grave mistake. >> russia needs to be careful in the judgments that it makes going forward here. we are not looking for confrontation. but we are making it clear that every country should respect the territorial integrity here. the sovereignty of the ukraine, russia has said it will do that. and we think it's important that russia keeps its word. lou: the russian counterpart fireback. warning the west and in sourcing decisions upon the ukrainian government. >> t is dangerous and counterproductive to try to force upon the ukraine the choice that you are with us or against us. it has to be part of a global european family that is meaningful of the term. lou: the permian pill in slow region the opposing groups, and some cases people getting killed. two people were killed in the demo
the ball cross court, drives to the basket. hits the go ahead lay-up there. >> great defense. >> i >> the desperation shot, see it? no good. all right. tar heels get their tenth straight victory 85-84. over at the nba for something you probably never seen before. pistons and spurs last night. check out ginobili on defense. he is behind number 21 on the spurs. you are watching this? he plants his left foot and busted right through his sneaker. yeah, he walks off with a shredded shoe. uninjured, he straps on a new sneaker and gets right back out there to play. >> defect. >> yeah. >> so earlier this week we introduced you to hank the dog, the milwaukee brewers unadopted mascot. he faced off with the brewers famous sausage racers. >> that's a dangerous race. >> yeah. >> the weiner costume and all, he continues to earn his place with the team. and look at. that they have him strapped down. he is weighted. poor little thing. look at hank with the mustard on his back and everything. all right. what do you do you bring in -- what do you -- what does that say? go back down. >> who do you br
cuts and the defense community, and they say that this would negatively impact veterans, particularly with retirement packages, so i think that there is a lot of wrangling going on with veterans and the defense community, but typically this is a constituency that supports republicans. i wouldn't really expect that to change. >> i want to switch gears because the president is launching a new effort called my brother's keeper. big businesses are preponderanced to support this, while obama care has really gotten a lot of scrutiny. could this initiative actually be his legacy issue? >> great, great question, and i think it will be. i think that this issue particularly for african-american men is something that the president has already made a huge difference on and is something that he is going to continue to make a difference on going forward even after he is president. i think that it's a huge piece of a legacy work that has already really begun, but is now being formalized that we're going to see played out for years to come even after the president leaves office. >> you talk about it
budget. the russians know they fall in their lap. >> the signals that are sent to russia russian defense ministers saying russia is now planning the permanent military presence outside russia's borders including vietnam, cuba, venezuela, ni caragua singapore and other countries and back in november secretary kerry said the monroe doctrine is dead. did he just waved the flag for russian expansionism? >> that is one of many that the administration has been waving. as clap to america the monroe doctrine is not popular and tell it is needed then they want to know where the united states is of central and south america are very worried about russian participation adventurism and a return of russian military shows that putin thinks he is achieving his objective to reestablish hegemony and he goes for world power status again. no doubt. lou: i don't know what status about obama of the secretary kerry suggested the united states was rejecting the monroe doctrine because it would concern our neighbors to the south. which is the exact opposite but which is to protect the hemisphere spinet the whol
to a coherent approach, looks at what secretary hagel just announced the new cuts to budget, at defense. and then today we're supposed to believe they will take tough new steps, and imminent more budget dollars, toward this burgeoning problem. if you look at it, you know. politically, if john kerry out polling you with confidence of american people, and you are barack obama, you have to can be worried. lou: and that is a terrific points. doug, ukrainians right now, left we forget they are at center, the epicenter of this crisis. they must be terrifically anxious about there are future, it sthr an is there any clirty foty clarity. >> none, vladimir putin made it clear he is not invading eastern, crane, for now. he made is clear he is not an economy "crime stoppers: cas -- yiemia for now, they say who knows what happens next. they look and hey say, we're going to have try to have presidential elects in may, we'll try to have economic asis sudden stuns from europe and united states put in place quickly. while they are outlines of the all of those processees in place. there no certainty. lo
that the pentagon and the joint chiefs, the secretary of defense right now are going through all the scenarios and the options for the use of force. clearly, it's premature for us to even talk about the use of force. however, it is a possible outcome and needs to be planned, and it is what i would describe very robust detail. so a lot of options are out there. clearly, the united states as a first order would have to have what's known as a command and control type capability so if a decision was made to apply force, it's going to be a joint force. all the services and the different combat and commands will be involved and it will require some element that will allow you to tie it all together. that's taking place right now in terms of discussions in what's known as warning orders, in order to posture us, to make sure we're prepared. but all this is premature because there are other elements of power that have to be addressed and have to be exhausted. if the united states has declared and determined that this is in their national interest to get involved in some way, or to simply allow this to
of the national defense council. and i spoke to one of the representatives of that council, deputy summer somer about the intentions of the russians. let's just listen in to what she thought. >> we understand that this is main goal of the russian army to -- ukrainian army to have its own country. but just now, we don't have any cases with -- where our on -- >> do you fear that there's going to be an escalation of the conflict area outside of crimea to, perhaps, eastern ukraine, for instance, which has a lot of russian support, we're told? >> so dangerous of escalation is very high. but ukrainian government try to keep the situation and our message for all ukrainian army to give the people. we understand that we are doing everything without armed forces. >> do you consider russian actions so far to be a declaration of war by russians on ukraine? >> yes. we can see the decision of the russian parliament and we can see act on the ukrainian territory in crimea. >> what they're saying here is the actions on the ground that have been a declaration of war. we've had a mobilization of regular forces, a
to bush and obama's secretary of defense bob gates who said this: "it seems to me that trying to speak with one voice, one american voice, has become a quaint thing of the past. i regret that enormously. and so do i. there's nothing more frightening to our enemy than a strong, united voice. it's incumbent upon his political rivals to encourage him privately, not provide political broadsides in public. there's going to be a lot of time to do that during the political campaigns but for now washington leaders should measure their words a bit more carefully because, richard, not on is the whole world watching, vladimir putin is watching. do you agree with secretary gates and myself that you can disagree with the president of the united states, the commander in chief without going out making extreme political broadsides? >> absolutely. what makes it more relevant here, i may be in a minority, but i don't think vladimir putin had in his closet a 16-point plan for ukraine. i think he's improvising and making it up as he's going along, looking for opportunities, playing off what it is we say a
the entirety of the defense of marriage act. >> do you think decisions that have been made now by judges in six different states are unconstitutional? >> we support the constitutional right of committed same sex couples to engage in civil marriage partnerships. we oppose any sort of discrimination being codified into law, which is what sb-1062 would have done had governor brewer signed it into law, this she did not tonight. >> why can't the republican party en masse -- if it's wrong for a private wedding photographer to be allowed to discriminate against a gay couple, clearly it should be wrong for an employer of a wedding photographer to fire that wedding photographer, because they are gay, right? that's the practice it would put an end to. >> correct. >> there seems to be no gap in the logic between those two. yet they're sitting there and waiting for the house republicans to take it up and pass it. >> it's sitting there having received bipartisan passage in the united states senate with 10 republicans voting for it, actually, both senators mccain and flake by the way. and it's not just sitti
they were cutting david wildstein loose and making him pay for his own defense, mr. wildstein sent a letter pleading his case arguing against their decision to not fund his legal fees. that same letter was the one that says evidence exists trying governor chris christie to having knowledge of the lane closures. if there was any george washington bridge left to burn between governor chris christie and david wildstein at that point, i think with that letter you can consider that bridge burned. and now this. now these unredacted documents. the unredactions that david wildstein that carefully senseored. what's going on here? earlier this month dade wildstein's lawyer met with a special council whose who have is advising the legislature. they sat down with david wildstein's documents and they negotiated line by line, redaction by redaction, what could legitimately be excluded from the public record because it really was not relevant and what information should be released. they worked together line by line to produce the documents that we got today including the new information that was previous
and killing her. the issue, was it murder? did he intend to kill her? >> his defense is it was a mistake and a reasonable person could have made the same mistake. fair enough but that's a tough defense. >> reporter: pistorius says he's kept a gun under his bed for security. he's always maintained it was all a tragic dent. the prosecution argues the shooting was deliberate. >> considering that oscar pistorius shot his own girlfriend in his own home multiple times, you would think it might be a victory for them if the judge only convicts him of the lesser crime of culpable homicide meaning it was a negligent shooting. >> reporter: well his defense team is leaving no stone your honor turned hiring a company that reproduces crime scenes and dr. henry lee who gave evidence during the o.j. simpson trial. the oscar pistorius trial is expected to last up to six weeks. most of it will be televised. dan and bianna. >> of course, the world will be watching. >>> on a lighter note we turn 0 our countdown to oscar sunday just one day away from hollywood's biggest night and the excitement is building,
of us that the chinese and iranians are watching this feeble response as we're gutting our defenses and they're planning their own next moves. it's not a good picture. >> colonel, we know that president obama and president putin spoke on the phone for about an hour and a half. do you think president obama understands the gravity of the situation and how important ukraine really is? >> no. in fact, i don't think that they recognize that this is a foretaste of what's to come if we continue the path that we're on for unilateral disarmament. we've got to stop battering our allies, like israel with the lunacy of trading land for peace. we need to build the xl pipeline, which our canadian allies want us to do and the obama administration can't figure out how to do it. if the iranians close the straights of hormuz next week, the price of oil is going to go through the roof and the economy is going to grind to a halt. all of these are the kinds of things that when america decides, a, we're not going to lead, and b, we're going to destroy the opportunity to deter this kind of action with a s
and sign the nuclear defense treaty, which he gave away the first days in office in order to reset relation with russia, and the united states is number two. everyone knows how frightened for 30 years since ronald reagan they are of a nuclear defense shield. he should have reinstated the nuclear defense shield and would have pushed putin back 20 yards. then they should have thrown him out of to the g . we shouldn't debate-are we going? >> maybe they're hoping -- try to give them the benefit of the doubt. marry maybe they're hoping -- the russian market drop. the ruble collapsed and many given his own bellicose talk he is hurting himself and at it going to fall on his actions. so let him implode on his own. >> maybe. maybe. possibly. could be. you're in charge. he just invaded a country that we have an obligation to protect, a country we want to bring over to the west. we don't wait for maybe, maybe, possibly could happen. that's not a leader. we act swiftly, we act decisively and we change the equation here with this man. instead of him pushing us around we push him around. that's the only
around putin's russia. poland and the czech republic, we abandoned our missile defense agreements with them to protect europe from a rogue missile attack coming out of the mid east. russia backed obama down. if i were president obama, i would reengage poland and the czech republic regarding missile defense. i would admit georgia to nato. would have a larger nato presence in the balkans. i would fly the nato flag as strong as as i could around putin. >> he is rubbing his face. president roosevelt once said don't mention the word rope in a family where there has ban hanging. here is a thought there. the weekly standard's bill kristol explained that humiliation was the way to go when it comes to the russian leader. let's listen to bill. >> we are too quick to say, to proclaim our own helplessness. and i'm not as fatalistic as jeffrey. if america got its back up and got serious, i think the europeans would follow. i don't expect them to lead in this respect. we could make life pretty miserable for putin in a lot of ways. >> but there has to be a way to find a face-saving solution or s
